After 3 years of working on some of the most exciting problems in the real-time data spaces, today we are shutting down JustSpotted.com and Scoopler.com to move on to new opportunities. Since starting Scoopler Inc. back in June 2008, we have been lucky enough to have worked on some of the most technically challenging and entertaining products on the web. We launched the world’s first real-time search engine in 2009 and last year we created JustSpotted, which was the #1 website for finding out where your favorite celebrities were last spotted. We are really proud of what we have achieved so far, but now our team is moving on to tackle new challenges, while still following our passion to organize real-time social information on the web. A special thanks to all our investors, advisers, friends and family and everyone else that has been involved in Scoopler Inc. We hope to hang out with you all again soon!
